lala.com helped make our gorilla vs. booze III day party possible, and they also asked us to submit a brief SXSW preview playlist highlighting some of our can't-miss acts this year. The playlist includes songs from:
- Department of Eagles, who played last night at Central Presbyterian Church on the 4 AD showcase with St. Vincent, M Ward, and Anni Rossi.
- Grizzly Bear plays perhaps our most anticipated show of the fest tonight at the church with Girls and the Rural Alberta Advantage.
- Wrens kick off the Hot Freaks proceedings Friday morning at the Mohawk, so we included a jam from their amazing Meadowlands LP.
- Alela Diane also brings her powerful live show to Hot Freaks on Friday, where she'll grace the intimate indoor stage at the Mohawk.
- Dallas' Erykah Badu plays on Saturday night with Beach House (who sounded better than ever at Red 7 yesterday) and Explosions in the Sky at Auditorium Shores, so we chose her amazing J Dilla-produced "Didn't Cha Know."
A special SXSW-edition of our Sirius XM Blog Radio show airs today at noon Eastern (and again at midnight) on Sirius XMU. This week's episode features guest DJ Sober, who will debut part of his new Satin Sheets Vol. 2 mix (which you can pick up for free at GvsBooze today). We'll also have brand new music from Phoenix, Bullion, Night Control, La Roux, and more. You can listen online with a free trial here. Check this week's playlist + some mp3s after the jump...
